Changing formatting of posts on my homepage (3 posts)

    Hello, I have my homepage set to display my latest posts, which I do want, however I would like to change the formatting so instead of each post displaying in its entirety, each post will display as a summary with the option to click and read the entire post. I'd like to do the same thing within categories.
    Thanks!

    this does depend on your currently used theme.

    general:
    - no programming needed: use the 'more tag' when writing or editing your posts;
    - programming needed: change the_content() to the_excerpt() in the corresponding templates; http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_excerpt

    this will help to find which templates you might need to edit: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Hierarchy

    The 'more tag' did it. Thanks much!
